Hip-Hop-Dancing Colin Powell Fuels Speculation He’ll Endorse Obama

Colin Powell has his dancing shoes on, fueling speculation that he’s gearing up to do the Obama Two-Step.

The normally staid former U.S. secretary of state and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff performed an impromptu hip-hop dance alongside well-known rap stars Tuesday following a speech at a festival in London celebrating African-American music and fashion.

His address at the “Africa Rising” celebration inside London’s Royal Albert Hall fueled speculation that an endorsement of Barack Obama is imminent.

Powell — who has yet to back a candidate — told the audience: “I stand before you as an African-American. Many people have said to me you became secretary of state of the USA, is it still necessary to say that you are an African American or that you are black? And I say yes, so that we can remind our children.”

“It took a lot of people struggling to bring me to this point in history,” Powell told the audience. “I didn’t just drop out of the sky. People came from my continent in chains.”

Uh, wait.

Why did this “fuel speculation” that Powell is about to endorse Obama? All I see here is that Powell danced to hip-hop and talked about his African heritage.

In other words, Fox is saying that he’s going to vote for Obama because he’s a black guy hanging out with black people and doing black things.

This election is awesome.

    Sounds like Afro-centric anti-American behavior to me.

    I don’t even want to know what kind of speculation this fueled about Powell.

    He’s black? I thought Obama was Irish.

    It’s contagious, now Powell’s palling around with musical terrorists.

    ” I thought Obama was Irish.”

    Exactly: “O’bama.” I mean, how much more proof do you need he’s Irish? Does he need to produce his Irish Certificate of Live Birth to prove it?

    Actually this makes perfect sense. Step Two in the Obama Administration (after instituting Shania Law) is Kill Whitey. But in this modern post-racial age, how do we determine who Whitey is? Whitey got no rhythym – thus in order to protect himself from the coming go-go booted all girl kung-fu army Colin Powell had throw down.

    Look, Marcia Brady traded sex for drugs and in light of that you expect me to buy this Colin Powell story ?

    A festival in London celebrating “African-American” music and fashion? No. We don’t have “african-americans” in Britain. We have people with black skin, and people from Africa.

    Why is it not surprising that fox news doesn’t think about these things? An american euphemism looks bloody stupid in a foreign context.

    I think in the picture he’s saying he’s going to vote for the crazy old mofo and the ho.

    Yeah, I got nothin.

    To be fair, if he were doing the Charleston it would fuel speculation that he was going to endorse McCain.

    Shorter Faux Noise:

    Only Niggers Vote for the Nigger.

    It’s just another dog whistle to remind the rednecks that Obama is a scary black guy.

    Actually, you’re finding the story on Fox due to State 2.

    This is a real report by various sources (Laurence O’Donnell) that Powell might be close to backing Obama publicly, so I assume Fux Nooz is at Stage 2: Undermine.

    Ha ha! Stupid negro-dancing Colin Powell want vote Obama! Ha ha!

    Powell is still a dork though. He should know that you have to unbutton your suit jacket if you are going to dance.

    Because they can’t think.

    Powell looks scared. That doesn’t look like dancing, that looks like “oh god, don’t hurt me, here, take my wallet!” to me.

    Proof at last of what I always suspected: Colin Powell was among the black power anti-white racists, Jew-haters, revolutionary Marxists, unrepentant former terrorists and Chicago mobsters at whose feet the Marxisant radical Obama sat and worshipped.

    Why is it that people who can’t dance, evidently of whatever color, point their index fingers while dancing badly?

    It has to be related to the White Man’s Overbite somehow. I must retire to the laboratory to ponder!

    I’m sorry, whoever wrote that should just be taken out and shot. It’s the only way we can rid the planet of such insufferable hackery.

    For what it’s worth, I recall that Powell is a West Indian, and to paraphrase Chris Rock, West Indians hate Niggras too. If he’d brought a polite, well-travelled black co-ed home for dinner back in college, his mother would have driven her out of the house with repeated blows from a broom handle while his father smacked the ass off of him.

    The slavers stopped in the Carribean first, and sold off the cream of the crop, then headed north to Cotton Country and auctioned off the remainders to the highest bidder. It’s ugly, it’s hateful, but unfortunately it’s more or less accurate.

    I can only hope the son of a bitch has set a date and time to take the Prussian officer’s way out, and has decided to kick it Bulworth style in the meantime because, hey, why not. Dress up like a Village Person complete with hard hat. Get down with his bad self. Then succumb to the shame, the legacy of playing a tool for an idiot king in front of the whole world, the complete vacuum of honor, the nighttime shrieking of the unquiet uniformed dead… and BANG! Now that’s change I can believe in.

    Don;t worry. The post election period is going to be even more fun.

    Uhhh… Bony, it’s the Caribbean education system, that accounts for the success of West Indians in the states, not that “cream of the crop” pseudo-anthropology you’re promulgating. Might have to stop by Golden Krust tonight…

    I, for one welcome our go-go booted all girl kung-fu overladies.

    It’s because Fox News wants their drones to know that the hive-mind mentality of black people is frightening.

    I don’t know, his apparent lack of rythm (as I can see from the picture) puts him right back into the McCain/Palin camp.

    Hey, I’ve read Thomas Carlyle’s charmingly dead-earnest “Occasional Discourse on the Nigger Question.” I know how a good wine cellar in a historic English country manor completely disguises the fact that it’s a converted dungeon with iron rings for manacles sunk deep into the walls. I know how much more useful cane knives are than cotton sacks when carrying out a well-planned uprising — dozens and dozens of times on each dinky little island. I understand the “white vs. black vs. colored” dynamic that gets played out over and over, most recently in South Africa but also, earlier, in Haiti (black runaway slaves go guerilla, repeatedly kick French ass until Napoleon gets bored and pulls out, and then methodically slaughter every colored human on the island, regardless of which side they fought on — the coloreds always lose).

    Know your black history! Or don’t. This is one of those things Americans just don’t get. Admit it, when you read “colored” you immediately flash on Bull Connor knocking down protestors with a fire hose while Freedom Marchers get dragged out of a nearby diner in handcuffs, don’t you? Mariah Carey never even enters your mind. The worst thing about U.S. society as a whole is that every single religious, racial and ethnic group in the world has a couple regiments of wingnuts here carrying on feuds that started centuries ago thousands of miles away. It’s like a series of overlapping riots with millions of pissed-off spectators firing dead batteries and cherry bombs through the barricades with slingshots. Ugh.
